Course description

This is an introductory level course dealing with the properties and behaviour of fluids in usual civil and environmental engineering applications. The fundamental principles of continuity, energy and momentum are introduced and applied to applications that include fluid statics, fluid dynamics, pipe flows, similarity laws, fluid loading and unsteady flows. The course provides essential knowledge for the study of natural flow phenomena in rivers, estuaries oceans and the atmosphere. It provides the fundamental theory for design of hydraulic structures such as culverts, spillways, energy dissipators and pipe networks.
